  1. Oh, that is so sweet. I love the feeling of joy you depicted here. It's so happy. I loved Winnie the Pooh when I was little and collected the dolls.

  27. Awwww, so true. Childhood IS fleeting. It's nice to capture it like you did here. I simply adore Pooh Bear. I always hear his funny little raspy voice. I'm sad that my kids aren't as enamored by him as I was, though.

  28. This is really beautiful. I like your philosophy about making a positive difference in the world. I hope to do the same through my artwork. It's much nicer to try to add beauty and laughter to the world - there's already enough of all the other stuff.
